Dear class,
Above, you will find a link for the week 1 Choice Boards for learning.  Each day has a subject, specials, and ideas for at home learning.  We will share some of the projects and ideas during our class meetings each Wednesday.  The assignments are only suggestions and are optional, but will help to keep your skills up in preparation for third grade.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
Book And Lamp.pngCool Information:  Did you know that you can get books from the public library...Door Dash style?  Log on to the PWCS Public Library site.  You will need your library card.  You can put the books you like on hold (up to 20).  They will collect them, bring them out to your car, and load them into your trunk.  So, no excuses for not reading!

Hi everyone,
Mrs. Trochan created a Kahoot-it quiz for students to play.  Here is the link she sent out... Here is the link:                                                             https://kahoot.it/challenge/0905137?challenge-id=49ca9cc5-82d4-46af-9167-8eeaec991df4_1585075456258

Have fun!  Miss you all.

RazKids - All RazKids reading levels have been updated.  Students have their login information glued in the front of their agendas.  If you are unable to locate your login info. please email me and I will send it to you.  Most students have part/all of their last name with one or two letters of their first name... followed by the number 28 or 30.  Their username is a picture. (This may jog their memory.)

Quick Links:  I have added some quick links to the right... Raz Kids and IXL, along with the pacing guide.  To access IXL...the Username is your child's ID number (lunch number) along with...@georgeg.  The password is the ID number alone.  Students should know their ID number - this is the number they enter for their lunch each day.  If you are having difficulty, please let me know.


Our 2019-2020 Yearly Pacing guide is below in the "Files and Documents" section.  It is set up by month...with each week listed in the rows on each page.  Do not try to teach new units...you are welcome to review items we have covered.  In the message below, I have outlined some ideas or topics you may practice or work on from home. (Be sure to read the message below.)


Dear Parents and Students,
Due to the virus, we have sent home the Kindles, charger and plug, along with books for reading.  Your child's level is on each book - so this can help you to find similar texts at your home or online.
I will be checking
 RazKids and updating many of the reading levels - to reveal new books...so keep checking.  I am attaching the 2019-2020 pacing guide.  The units of study for each week are listed.  This is a great resource to guide you with possible sites or topics to discuss at home.  We have been working on "How To" writing, so encourage your child to write several paragraphs on a topic they feel comfortable with.  Be sure they include:  topic sentence, transition words (first, then, next, last, lastly, step two, following that...), and a conclusion.  Another idea would be to research a famous American and create an essay about their contributions.  
Cursive writing takes practice.  At home you can write several upper and lower-case letters to trace and then have your child practice each letter of the alphabet.  Some simple words can be included such as your child's name or sight words.  Choose one letter each week to practice.  Tracing letters in shaving cream, or creating letters with spaghetti can also be fun, tactile ways to learn cursive.
In mathplease have your child practice:  telling time to the nearest minute, counting change up to $2.00, addition and subtraction of 2-digit numbers with and without regrouping.  Calendar skills are also encouraged.
We have made such wonderful progress in reading.
  Please be sure your child reads everyday.  Ask comprehension questions, and check for new vocabulary terms.  As a parent you should also read
 to your child.  This will help them with expression, visualization, and new vocabulary.  Stay healthy!  I will continue to send updates, so keep checking.
